x7 and everytime I open I get warning that the library is locked or a locked volume and I cannot save any changes (read only). I've checked the read only and they are not selected. Any other suggestions??

Could you find any solution to the problem? I am facing the same issue on Mac with EndNote 7.7.
My EndNote library gives the warning that "The Library is Locked or it is on a Locked Volume", while none of it is true. The library and the volume both have read and write permission.

On a Windows machine, the following solved it (as did rebooting). Not sure if a similar process can have the same effect on a Mac.
Locate the email helper file in the Task Manager on the NEW machine. End this process and EndNote will load as it should.

THIS IS SOOOO FRUSTRATING!!!
Copied the .enl file and the folder with the data from my work computer to work at home and I CANNOT ADD?CHANGE REFERENCES!!!!
FYI- changing the "read only" attribute on the file properties does not work - even if you cahnge it, it continues to give the error on the X7 program!!!

There might be something wrong with the library file itself (e.g. corrupted). Were you sharing the library file or putting it on the cloud or other external storage device?
Suggest you contact tech support:
